    I'm rewatching Life on Mars. I'm just got to the football hooligan episode and what an episode it is! Sam's speech about how hooligans were runing lives was brilliant. Really enjoying it and will follow up with Ashes to Ashes which I've not seen yet.

    Yes, it aired in the US on Showtime on Sunday, but the finale in the UK is this coming Sunday on Channel 4.

    Just binged Manifest season 2 and now onto Gangs of London.

    It's good, very good in fact. The fight scenes are brutal and well done.

    I've just finished The Witcher.

    The production was a bit weird it kept going from high quality to feeling like day-time TV levels. Also had to rewind it few times too as they seems to mumble a lot of lines which made it harder to follow what was going on seeing as I had no previous experience with the books or the game.

    By the end of it though I was gutted I ran out of episodes to watch and I'm looking forward to the next series.

    Difficult to explain really. If you have seen anything else by Alex Garland, like Deus Ex Machina, this has a similar feel to that in a way. Mystery / sci-fi with a good feel for atmosphere. Main character is a little bit bland, but don't let that put you off. The story is good.

    How did you find Manifest? I enjoyed Season 1, but we seem to have given up around half way through the second. It felt samey.

    Not strictly TV, but I've actually been binge watching back episodes of Good Mythical Morning (and by association Good Mythical More and Mythical Kitchen), no idea how this has escaped me for so long given they have been around for over a decade.

    Rhett & Link are absolute legends :D

    Just finished Money heist and thought it was brilliant. Really want to see part 5 now.

    Been seriously binging Devs, only one left to watch now. One of the best series I've seen since Dark.

    Nearly finished the first season of Manhunt, so last night I began taking a look at Devs. Looks promising.

    Just finished Homeland S8, which I think is the last season. Honestly, I've loved it. S8 has been a great season and that last ep had some fantastic tension, like was saw back in S01E09 (I think it was, anyway). Quite a good ending I feel too, which for me is a big factor on the overall rating of a show. I would probably put Homeland into my top 10 (and I've watched a lot of TV! :) )

    Tales From The Loop on Amazon Prime. It's excellent and seem to be a total sleeper hit as I haven't seen anyone talking about it. Well-written, beautifully shot and I really like the character-driven retro sci-fi concept. Highly recommended.

    We have discussed it in this thread. I had a concern a few people said it was a little slow in places, but general opinion was it was good.

    Binge watched both seasons of Ricky Gervais in Afterlife last night and today, 12 x 30 minute episodes.

    Superb. Really funny and really sad. It's like a mix of The Office, a love story and some deep philosophical stuff. I've never heard the C word uttered so much. :D Definite must watch.
